Altenew Card Kit Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the Altenew Card kit Blog hop! Uou can start the blog hop from the beginning if you click here.

Today I am sharing ideas on how you can use the products included in the “New Day” Card Kit ( ALTN | SSS | ELH ). If you want to see what’s included I have already posted an unboxing video last week. You can find it in this post.

You will find links to these products at the bottom of this post along with details on the GIVEAWAYS!

I made 3 cards by putting the gorgeous paper pad into good use. I want to inspire you, to use more patterned paper in your cards. So I decided to make cards with the paper instead of stamping. Gorgeous, easy and quick!

The paper with the watercolor map is my favorite! All I did was adding a few of the die cuts included and thread a string. Plus it is easy to personalize as you can add that geo-tag anywhere in the world in makes sense to you and the recipient.

My second card is even quicker than the first. I paired the gorgeous patterned paper with the red carstock and added my sentiment using the alpha stickers included. A great reminder, that we don’t need to overthink the design every time. Go simple and let the patterned paper do the job for you!

And my last card for today looks stunning in my eyes! That gold and elegant frame on top of that gorgeous paper! And how I love that color combo! I actually framed one of the included die cuts and used my black marker to tick one of the check boxes. Go ahead and tick them all if you wish!

    I saw your video on YouTube and I’m in love with this cardstock pad from Alt& New, absolutely gorgeous! And I liked how you used this beautiful paper to work, they don’t need much embellishment at all, that’s what make it so practical and quick to create. I’m planning on making a mini album out of it.

    Thank you for the encouragement to use patterned papers in place of stamping. My cards are usually quite involved, so I run out of time to get them done and now I have a growing pile of partially finished cards on my desk. The cards you show here are beautiful and I am now inspired to dig into my collection of patterned papers to try to create something similar. Thank you!
